The Schwartz's vs Cody's 13 Months Old!

Cody Man!  My little Pumpkin!  You are 13 months old today and here's how you've grown:

* You wave and clap often.  It's very very cute!  Plus you also reach for things that you want now so that's a big check off the old dr's to-do list.
* You still like to dance but won't do it for the camera so I haven't documented it yet.  It mostly involves you bringing your elbows in and turning back and forth with a big smile on your face.  We love it and ask you to do it all the time which I think irritates you.
* You are getting more brave with walking.  You will spontaneously stand up and take 5 or so steps before you fall over.  I think the longest walk you've taken was 12 steps.
* Sometimes you stand up and walk a few steps then stop and clap.  Like, "come on guys, did you just see that.  I'm awesome!"
* Your favorite toys right now (besides whatever Sarah has) seem to be the sounds and texture balls that we have.  You like to take them out and shake them and then throw them.  You also love to play with the Fisher Price door and the Little People car ramp.
* You are a climber and have been for months.  But most recently you've started climbing on the step stool in the bathroom to get to Sarah's toothbrush.
* Which reminds me, you love tooth brushes.
* You also love to sit in my bathroom and take all the bandaids out of the boxes.  I've told you over and over again "that's not cool" so now when Sarah finds you doing it I hear her yell, "Not cool Cody!" and immediately know where you are and what you've been up to.
* You don't talk much still.  You can say mamma but we don't hear much dadada like we use to.
* You shake your head no a lot!  With added emphasis when you are getting mad about something.
* Still working on that whole nap time thing.  I think we've narrowed it down to sometime between 12:30 and 1 you have to be laid down to get maybe a 2 hour nap.  So we've been working on arranging our gym schedule to make it happen.
* Your favorite foods are still sandwiches and this month we finally got you to start eating vegetables.  Well, just one vegetable.  You seem to tolerate carrots now.  Green beans are still apparently evil and you gag and cough and look insulted at us if we try to sneak one in.
* You like to try to use forks and spoons.  You're very interested in them and like to have them at meal times.  You seem to understand what you are supposed to do with them but don't quite know how to make it happen.  The other day you were stabbing at the food with the fork and actually speared a piece.  Of course, after that you just picked it off the fork with your finger but still we were impressed.
* You are melodramatic!  You spend about 20 minutes after each nap throwing yourself around on the ground wallering and crying like it's the end of the world.  Then for no reason you'll finally just be over it and crawl off and start playing.

You bring a lot of life and laughter to this family little man and we love you!

  1. Love his hair in the first photo!! He is such a cutie. I love seeing pics of him bc I can see he resembles you, Chris, AND Sarah. He's like everybody's cuteness thrown into a little man. It's so fun! I still can't believe he's one and now already a month past his bday... Sigh.
